Please consider honoring Lois by donating to the Palomino Horse Breeders of America Youth Scholarship fund or contact Terri Green 918-438-1234 to donate to the Palomino Horse Breeders Asso.


We are very sad to inform our OPEA Go For The Gold Family of the passing of Lois Smith on January 21, 2021.

She celebrated her 89th birthday January 13th.

With the Help of Susan Fredricks, Lois started the Go For The Gold Futurity in 1995.

Lois was loved by all that met her whether 2 or 4 legged.  


She will be greatly missed.  Please keep her husband, David in your prayers as well as other family and friends.



Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
